Podcast: How to Fix the Widening AppSec Skills Gap

The AppSec Skills Gap Is Widening Nearly 20% A Year. Here's How We Fix It.

A recent survey from Veracode and DevOps.com found that the majority of IT and development professionals weren’t required to take security courses in college – and they’re not receiving the necessary training from their employers. So, we have to ask: where does the fault lie? Should universities ramp up their security education – or does that responsibility fall on the industry? Perhaps the solution is somewhere in-between. Wall Street Journal columnist and author Gary Beach addresses these questions – and how to close the skills gap – in this month’s Cyber Second podcast.
